Caramel Apple Bread Recipe

A Delicious & Nutritious Treat to Make with the Kids!

So I’m on a total apple kick right now….I really think it’s this beautiful fall weather that we’ve been having lately!  

The other day I shared the Air Fryer Apple Crisp Recipe I love baking with Little Man; as well as this Baked Apple Roses recipe that I made for my sister’s bridal shower.

Today, I’m sharing this delicious Caramel Apple Bread Recipe.  It’s the perfect blend of delicious fall flavors and is a blast to make with the kids!

Picking apples in the fall is a favorite family activity!
Picking apples in the fall is a favorite family activity! And making those apples into delicious recipes, like this Caramel Apple Bread, is the perfect way to spend a fall afternoon with the kids!

Every year we go apple picking and have an amazing time.  There’s this apple orchard called Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock, NC which is about 2 hours away from us.  

It’s an all day affair to go apple picking but I love that it’s way up in the mountains and the views are just breathtaking!  Plus, it makes for a really inexpensive fun day out!  

At Sky Top they just charge for the apples you pick and their prices are cheaper than the grocery store!  Can you believe you get a day of fun AND apples for around $1 a pound!  Because, you know, they have more than just picking apples to do there!

Picking the perfect apple for a delicious recipe.
Not only is apple picking a fun activity, but baking those apples into delicious recipes is an educational experience for kids.

They have a fun play area for the kids.  The BEST apple fritters I’ve ever tasted.  Tons of varieties of apples, trails to walk through, animals to see, and so much more.  

No, I haven’t been paid to write about them….I just really love visiting Sky Top Orchard!

Anyway, one reason I love this caramel apple bread recipe so much is that the kids can help with making it and we can have a farm to table learning experience with this recipe.  

It’s always great when you can merge education and yummy goodies. 🙂

This caramel apple bread recipe is a delicious snack everyone loves!

When we go out to the orchard to pick the apples Little Man and I talk about how the farmers plant the trees and how they grow and produce apples.  We’ll talk about how delicious apples are and how good they are for our bodies….then we talk about all of the delicious food we’re going to make with the apples.

By doing this you’re not only talking your little one through the steps of where our food comes from but they are getting to experience it and that makes it so much more fun!  

Whenever we go apple picking we make sure that we buy enough apples to make homemade apple sauce, this caramel apple bread recipe, this Air Fryer Apple Crisp Recipe, and our newest favorite the baked apple roses.  

There are so many delicious apple recipes to make with kids….I’ve compiled a pretty yummy list.

Now on with this delicious Caramel Apple Bread Recipe!
